The best-selling prank letters 'discovered' by Jerry Seinfeld Spoof letter writing has a long history from Lazlo Toth to Henry Root but nothing can prepare you for the uniquely surreal and endearing world of Ted L Nancy. A kind of Trigger Happy correspondence, his innocent requests, queries, complaints, demands and suggestions to hotels, airlines, multi-national corporations, local government and department stores are so absurd it is amazing they fool anyone - but often the deadpan responses are even more hilarious. Ted wants to know if he can graft his big toe onto his nose, why his wife left him while he was in a coma for another man in a coma, and if he can consummate his marriage in the administrative office of the chapel. He writes to hotels telling them he eats his mattress. He writes to casinos to ask if his band the 'Fat Beatles' can perform and if he can stay in their hotel dressed as a bladder. Utterly addictive and wet-yourself-in-a-public-place funny: Dear Business Permits Dept: I want to apply for a business permit in your fine city...I operate the SOUP & SLEEP RESTAURANTS. You can either order soup or sleep. A hostess will greet you and you would say, "I'd like to sleep." She will lead you to a table where you can catch a few winks. Dear Helena Ocean & Dog Licensing Dept: I will stage the play "MARK TWAIN WITH TOURETTE'S SYNDROME."...Let me know what arrangements I need to make to store my anchovy tank at your seaport. Thank you. I await large crowds.

Reviews

"very funny" * Hot Stars, OK Magazine * "A collection of crazed correspondence by Ted L. Nancy. The name is a pseudonym, perhaps for Jerry Seinfeld, who wrote the introduction. Seinfeld never comes clean, but the letters have his prints all over them" * Amazon.com *

J. Marguerite on
 
Some of the letters in this book were quite funny while others were a bit more odd and strange. I did laugh out loud at some parts (my favourite being the one with Mickey Mantle's toenails), but the rest just gave me an inward, amused chuckle. Maybe it's because I read it all in one sitting- someone else here recommended reading the letters over a period of time.

This is a fun book, but maybe one that should be enjoyed over a period of time. One for the coffee table.
